Father and Daughter : Patriarchy, gender and social science, Paperback / softback Book

Father and Daughter : Patriarchy, gender and social science Paperback / softback


Father and daughter provides an unique `insider perspective' on two key figures in twentieth-century British social science.

Ann Oakley, a highly respected sociologist and best-selling writer, draws on her own life and that of her father, Richard Titmuss, a well-known policy analyst and defender of the welfare state, to offer an absorbing view of the connections between private lives and public work. Using an innovative mix of biography, autobiography, intellectual history, archives, and personal interviews, some of which have not been previously available to the public, she provides a compelling narrative about gender, patriarchy, methodology, and the politics of memory and identity.

This fascinating analysis defies the usual social science publications to offer a truly distinctive account which will be of wide interest.
